Thanks to this network, scientific information and insights can be echanged and commented on an European level for epidemiology diagnosis, vaccination and applied pertussis research. The NRC Bordettella pertussis participates in third-line assesments (‘ringtests’) organised by SKML (Stichting Kwaliteitsbewaking Medische Laboratoriumdiagnostiek) of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands and by NIBSC (The National Institute for Biological Standards and Control) in the United Kingdom.
